The lecturer will encourage us to think about pending issues and complex challenges that the current age puts forward in contemporary journalism. The politicization of media and manipulation of mass communication have cast doubts on its very foundation – freedom of speech and ethics code of journalists. The growing disparity between traditional and social media and the normalization of “fake news” puts journalists and the thinking public in a difficult situation. There are no universal solutions, and each journalist has to make his or her own choice. The lecture is aimed at representatives from the media and the general public.
